Elevation 8

Airbus Elevation 8 simplifies the access and use of elevation data and provides exactly the right model for your project requirements, especially if it involves a large area of interest. It provides highly accurate elevation information, with a vertical accuracy down to 3m at 8m grid spacing anywhere in the world and independent of relief and weather conditions.

Elevation 8 is ideally suited for mapping, hydrology, and exploration of natural resources. Whether planning an infrastructure network, conducting a defence mission in unknown terrains, or analyzing terrain features for oil and gas exploration: accurate terrain height information is critical.

Elevation 8 dataset is derived from SPOT6/7 Stereo or Tristereo optical satellite data with vertical accuracy down to 3m at 8m grid spacing. It is available as a Digital Elevation Model (a model of the ground that includes both ground and above ground features like buildings, vegetation, etc). The Digital Terrain Model (representing the bare Earth elevation, vegetation, and man-made objects removed) is also available.

The satellite’s optimized combination of wide-area coverage and high-resolution image acquisition supports the rapid collection of imagery and delivery of products. The models are tailored exactly to your Area of Interest (AOI) starting at a minimum of just 1,000km².
